The mission of Advances in Skin & Wound Care is:
Advances in Skin & Wound Care is the official journal of the APWCA. As part of our ongoing partnership, Advances in Skin & Wound Care is committed to helping APWCA members disseminate important wound care research through collaborative, tailored editorial guidance and support. In particular, Advances is issuing a call for Case Reports or Series and short, clinically-oriented Practice Points articles. Once published, you may even have the chance to be featured in a future Trivia Tuesday!
A Case Report offers readers practical information about a single case that may be applicable to clinical care more broadly. The case may detail a rare condition/diagnosis or an unusual outcome. A Case Series offers readers practical information by describing a series of patients (up to a dozen) who have interesting outcomes of care. Clinical images to accompany these articles are encouraged. All articles must clearly state within the body of the manuscript that written informed consent was provided by each patient to publish the case details and associated images, if any. Submissions without this statement will be immediately returned to the author.
These articles are intended for immediate use by practicing healthcare professionals and should comprise an extremely brief, practical overview of a single aspect of clinical care. The content should interpret the literature and present data, evidence, or guidelines in a format that can be easily implemented at the point of care. These articles must not exceed 1,500 words, or two printed pages of content. Submissions exceeding this length will be returned to the author for revision. Up to 5 key references may be included. A single figure or table is encouraged to illustrate the concept or enable translation to practice.
